CLE - Going Undercover as an Attorney: Inside Operation Greylord
In April 1980, after serving four years as a prosecutor, Terry Hake agreed to assist the FBI and the United States Attorney's Office in Chicago in an investigation of the Cook County Court System. For 3 1/2 years, he worked undercover posing as a corrupt prosecutor and accepting bribes from attorneys, and later as an attorney in private practice making payoffs to judges and court personnel for the dismissal of cases. The investigation, known as "Greylord," resulted in convictions of 18 judges, 57 lawyers, 10 law enforcement officers, and other court personnel.
Operation Greylord remains one of the FBI's most successful undercover investigations. Attend this free event featuring Terry Hake, and hear the inside story of the investigation and the ethics, courage, dedication, and sacrifice it required. A light reception will follow the presentation.
This event is sponsored by the UST Law Criminal Law Association, and cosponsored by the Holloran Center for Ethical Leadership in the Professions, Public Discourse, and the American Constitution Society.
